Welcome to the first ever Radio Audio Week, celebrating the best of radio and audio in the UK across six jam-packed days of conferences, lectures, seminars and networking events.

The week celebrates what is being hailed as “the audio revolution” which has seen record numbers of people listening to the radio, the coming of age of podcasts and streaming services, and – especially critical over the last 18 months – the launch and quick adoption of voice-activated devices.

This page will be constantly updated over the coming weeks with more events and news from Radio Audio Week and its partners, so keep checking back and make sure to book your places at events as soon as possible.
